Holy Kisses. Ten-Years-in-Tibet, 52.7

Yesterday we had the privilege of joining the Elderberries Class for a luncheon at our church.  Mark was the speaker so Ellis and I went to listen and fellowship with the older-souls.  A certain scene keeps repeating.  A white haired gentleman beckoned ten year old Ellis over to where he was seated at the dining table.  Without solicitation Ellis gazed in his eyes not two inches from his face.  I thought she was going to kiss him but then she gave him a tight hug.  The look of sheer delight on his face while Ellis was holding his neck.  That's where the ten second clip ends and then replays.  Incidentally the following pictures have been flashing on our screen saver for the last couple of weeks.  One of them appeared a few minutes ago and that was my prompt to write this blog.  No need to search the picture archives.  I'm just going to call this holy kisses and leave it at that.

We lived across the street from an old folks home.  We got to know many of the residents and came to feel that they were our own relatives.  Their stories were ours.  On this afternoon we had a physical therapist visitor who brought supplies to give paraffin hand treatments.  Our friends took turns dipping their hands in the wax and then receiving other kinds of care while in our "waiting room" on this bench.  Eye drops, ear cleaning, etc.  Here's what Ellis administered as she went down the line.

Who wouldn't want to kiss these faces?
